Portrait of a flirt
EnglishFrançaisDeutsch
Robert Farnon (1917–2005) was born in Canada and came to England as conductor of the Allied Expeditionary Forces Band in 1944. He was soon in demand as arranger and conductor, thanks particularly to a remarkable sequence of compositions which became highly popular in the late-1940s through exposure on radio—especially on the programme In Town Tonight. Among them was the aptly named Portrait of a Flirt (1947), which ends provocatively after flitting playfully between one rhythm and another.
